What is the D&B Rating?

The D&B Rating serves as a risk assessment of the company in focus. Usually it consists of the Financial Strength Indicator and the Risk Indicator.
The Financial Strength Indicator is an evaluation of the capital capacity of the company. It is based on either Net worth or - in case there is no Balance Sheet figures available - on calculated total assets.
The Risk Indicator is based on the D&B Score. If there is no Score available expert rules are used to allocate the Risk Indicator.
